As an extra money earner while on maternity leave, I decided to try selling illustrations to stock libraries. I’ve now been accepted to supply to istock.com, shutterstock.com, dreamstime.com and fotolia.com.
Its a slow burner in terms of money making but am planning to build my repertoire with hundreds of them so it will start to tick over. I guess you could say for now I’m experimenting to see which styles sell the best – am finding its speech bubbles and starbursts, woo! Ok, so I’m under no illusions its cutting edge design but its fun no pressure stuff I can do in my downtime and I can save my best work for something a bit more specsh.
